On October 17, Beijing time, the 2020-21 CBA League kicked off. The first stage of the regular season (October 17-November 14) will still adopt the game system. At 16:00 this afternoon, Jiangsu Men’s Basketball Team and Qingdao The men's basketball team will start the first game of the opener. The Jiangsu Men's Basketball offseason changed a lot. Veteran Yi Li retired, "Big Bear" Liu Wei left the team, Hou Yifan was sent away, Xu Mengjun was obtained from Beijing Enterprises; Radulica's priority renewal right was traded to Zhejiang Guangsha, Guangsha gave Wu Yujia to Jiangsu; Zhao Luzhou did not participate in the new season because he entered the three-man basketball national training team.
In the first round of the draft, Jiangsu signed Zheng Qilong, the son of the Chinese men's basketball star Zheng Wu, with the No. 5 pick. At the same time, it also promoted four young players in one go. The Jiangsu team's new season lineup is getting younger and younger. In terms of foreign aid, the Jiangsu Men’s Basketball Team signed Devin Williams and Marcus Hunter. They have not yet arrived in China. It is very likely that they will miss the first stage of the new season. The lineup of the class played. What is more noteworthy is that the Jiangsu team hired the former Chinese men's basketball coach Li Nan as the team's head coach during the offseason. You must know that this is the first time that Li Nan has coached a CBA team.
Because of his performance in the Basketball World Cup last year, Li Nan has been accused by media fans. I don’t know if coaching the professional league for the first time will give people a refreshing feeling. Moreover, Li Nan’s son Li Lutong has been promoted to the first team this season, and he will also have a chance to appear in this campaign. , CBA will reappear another pair of "father and son soldiers". The Qingdao Men's Basketball offseason has not changed much. The rotation players Zhou Zhandong, Zhai Yi, Jiao Hailong and Ding Haoran have left, but there are no competitive players to join, and the overall strength has declined. In terms of foreign aid, the Qingdao Men's Basketball Team signed Dakari Johnson, Stimac and Adams. The three of them have come to China and are still in isolation.
Therefore, in the CBA opening match between Jiangsu and Qingdao, both teams will use the all-China team to play, and compared with last season, both the lineup configuration and overall strength have declined. Let’s analyze the victory of the two teams. In the negative situation, the Jiangsu team needs to rely on the main players such as Wu Guanxi, Shi Hongfei, and Huang Rongqi to win, especially Wu Guanxi has a heavy burden on his shoulders. There is no big foreign aid present, and only Liu Yuxuan and Li Lutong are beside him. And the inexperienced young insider, once Wu Guanxi is restricted, or if he does not perform well, the Jiangsu team basically has no offensive tactics.
Returning to the Qingdao men’s basketball team, the player configuration is more balanced. Zhang Chengyu, Zhao Tailong, Wang Qingming, Liu Chuanxing, Lin Wickham and others have more fierce playing characteristics, and the playoff trip last season has doubled their confidence. From a point of view, the Qingdao Men’s Basketball Team is closer to victory, while the Jiangsu Men’s Basketball Team’s variable lies in the head coach Li Nan. After all, leading the national team and the CBA professional league are completely different things. You can’t deny him with one stick, otherwise the Jiangsu Men’s Basketball Team will not sign Next Li Nan.
